Our Principal Writes

11 November 2015

Most of you, if you are familiar with FOBISIA, will know a little about the sporting and cultural opportunities it provides for our students. I have just returned from a weekend visit to Singapore where I attended the Federation of British International Schools in Asia (FOBISIA) Heads and Senior Leaders’ Conference. 

  • BISS Lions

We joined the federation three years ago and each year our young athletes have the opportunity to meet and compete with other British International School students across the Asia region at Under 11, Under 13 and Under 15 age groups. Just last weekend, our Under 15 team travelled to Discovery Bay International School in Hong Kong for the Under 15 Games where they competed against and interacted with teams from six other similar-sized member schools. A full report on the games will be in our newsletter next week, but I’m pleased to say our team performed extremely well in Hong Kong and I am sure their involvement in the FOBISIA Games will have been a very exciting experience that will live long in their memories. The federation also provides us with a variety of other important educational, cultural and professional development opportunities over the course of the year and during the business elements of the meeting, future plans and developments were discussed, fine-tuned and sanctioned.

The conference was entitled “Be Inspired” and in a number of ways it encouraged just that. It was very well hosted by the Tanglin School, which has a large campus and in touring round it and meeting the staff  and students, there is always a good deal to learn and be inspired by. In the main, the key note speakers and the workshop were also of a very high quality and gave food for thought on topics as wide and varied as sustainability and the teaching of modern languages to mindfulness and creativity, 21st Century literacies and learning.

Not all that we were inspired by over the weekend is immediately applicable to our work at BISS Puxi. However, the conference  has provided me with a good deal to reflect upon and to share in the first instance with senior colleagues and undoubtedly some ideas that will have an influence on the further development and sharpening of what we offer to students over the next few years.

The upcoming long weekend affords our community a well-deserved break in the middle of a very busy and successful term.  I hope that you and your family have a peaceful and restful weekend.

Kevin Foyle, Principal
